Building communities to protect women via technology, sounds okay to me.   Anyhow, the Circle of 6 app is meant to give people, with expensive first world technology, some options.  Here is the press blurb from the site.

circleofsix“With Circle of 6 you have a new way to connect with your most trusted friends – to stay
close, stay safe and prevent violence before it happens!
It’s the mobile way to look out for your friends – on campus or when you’re out for the night.
Circle of 6 lets you choose six trusted friends to add to your circle. If you get into an uncomfortable
or risky situation, use Circle of 6 to automatically send your circle a pre-programmed SMS alert
message, with your exact location. It’s quick. It’s discreet. Two taps on your iPhone is all it takes.
Here’s how it works:
• You’re out late and you lose track of your friends.
Use Circle of 6 to send your circle a “come and get me” message – with a map using GPS to
show your precise location.
• You’re on a date that starts to get uncomfortable. You need a polite way to excuse yourself.
Use Circle of 6 to alert your circle to call you and interrupt the situation.
• You’re seeing someone new, but you have some doubts about how things are going.
Use Circle of 6 to access a wealth of online information about healthy relationships.
• In critical situations, use Circle of 6 to call two pre-programmed national hotlines or a local
emergency number of your choice.
Circle of 6 is more than a safety application; it’s a community and a state of mind. It fosters the
formation of groups based on trust, and it connects users with organizations who have made
violence prevention their mission. We hope that the app becomes a vehicle for a social movement
that champions safe and healthy relationships.

  The app for dudes is so much simpler – it just brings up this handy poster for quick viewing
